A police spokesman said: ‘When the brawl stopped, one of the two, which includes the football players then started abusing police officers verbally. At some stage, one of them threw a punch at one of the policemen and a fight started again.
‘The three of them were arrested but while trying to arrest them, the others, including the football player, got very violent. They were able to bring down two policemen, hit them and kicked them.
‘I can’t say what they were telling us. They were English swear words against the authorities and against the police. All three remain in police custody, in Mykonos cell. They are due to appear in front of a state prosecutor later today and will be charged with aggravated assault.’
